NLS Operations Alert No. 13-44
DATE: July 26, 2013
TO: Network Libraries
FROM: Alice O’Reilly, Assistant to the Chief, Materials Development Division
SUBJECT: Third-party cartridge orders
Alcor Technology will produce third-party green cartridges in 256MB, 512MB, and 4GB. If you had an outstanding order with Northstar, it will not be automatically filled by Alcor. You will need to place that order again.
To mitigate the difficulties some libraries had with Northstar’s build-to-order system, which resulted in pricing not being set at the time of order, Alcor Technology has agreed to hold a stock of 9,000 third-party green cartridges for purchase at a fixed price that will be quoted at the time of order. The price will be determined by the cost of memory modules available on the market at the time of production. However, a large-quantity order will be build-to-order, and the price will be set at the time the order is placed.
Currently there are no cartridges available for purchase, but libraries that would like to place an order should contact:
9650 Business Center Dr, Suite 108
Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91730
phone: (720) 583-2375
